The Cubs' Twitter account has been saving this one for nine months.
First, let us present you with this doozy of a tweet from the Cubs after Thursday's 4-2 win over Milwaukee.
If you recall, Brewers outfielder Christian Yelich went at Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish on Twitter last November. A since-deleted tweet from Yelich's account to Darvish read "nobody needs help facing you."
A video circulated in November that showed Darvish step off the rubber while Yelich was in the batter's box during a 2019 Cubs-Brewers game. Some suggested Darvish stepped off because Yelich's eyes moved, also suggesting Yelich was looking for signs stolen via technology.
In response to the video, Darvish explained his actions from that game, clarifying he wasn't accusing Milwaukee of stealing signs.
But that's not mean Brewers stealing signs.— ダルビッシュ有(Yu Darvish) (@faridyu) November 15, 2019
Here we are nearly a year later, the Cubs' Twitter playing off Yelich's tweet after Darvish dominated Milwaukee. He took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, allowing a hit (a solo homer) and two walks while striking out 11.
If you're wondering, Yelich went 0-for-2 with a hit by pitch against Darvish on Thursday.
